Home to alligators and Mardi Gras, oil refineries and shrimp boats, Louisiana is bordered by the Mississippi River to the east, Texas to the West, Arkansas to the North and the Gulf of Mexico to the south. The state’s capital city is Baton Rouge, but the cultural capital of Louisiana is without a doubt New Orleans, where the state’s French and Spanish heritage are always on display. The most tropical of all the contiguous US states, Louisiana is known for its short winters and long sultry summers, and for the hurricanes and tropical storms that sometimes sweep the Gulf Coast and flood the state’s swampy lowlands.
Louisiana’s economy is based upon the state’s abundant natural and agricultural resources, whether for products they produce or for the tourism these resources generate. Important agricultural products include seafood—Louisiana supplies 90 percent of the world’s crawfish—cotton, soybeans, sugarcane and rice. Other agricultural products include cattle, poultry and dairy products. The state’s oil and coal products are also key to industry, as are chemical products, paper products and processed food.
Nevada trades in fantasy, but that’s not all. Down-to-earth industries like mining and ranching play an important role in the state’s economy.

Louisiana to Nevada Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Louisiana is mainly agricultural, and Nevada is mostly industrial, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer. We also see a number of flatbed shipments as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Louisiana and Nevada are also running a number of regular services between the two states, and it’s an active route for heavy haul freight shipments, as well.
